We are prepping for trip #10 of the year. Weíve only hit one truly crazy busy day. Should hit 15 trips before the end of the year, probably more. Since we only live an hour and a half away, itís just a day trip for us. The kids are older now and we are really get our use out of the passes.

Happy to see that the minimum height only went to 40" since this replaces a ride that was one of the 36" height rides.

55 inches to ride without someone 16 or over

Hahaha!  I just found the blue super distracting and felt like his vest didnít fit. But he did a great job!!!

They did a Facebook live this afternoon. They say the announcement on tuesday will talk about the new ride, the new tree, pumpkin nights, and ďother surprises for 2020Ē.  I think the guy did a good job with the live video I just wish his clothing would have fit a little better.

I am wanting to go up this week but Ozark Valley is booked Friday/Saturday and it looks like everything else in Branson is just about booked or more than I want to pay.  Thought about staying in Springfield and just driving back and forth, or going on Sunday.  Do you think Friday night will be swamped?  What about Saturday night?  Sunday?

Everything is booked due to the cal Ripken series. Iím not sure how that will affect attendance though.

We got here at 2:15ish. Had no issue finding a parking spot. Waited in no lines until 6:30, though we chose to avoid long lines like time traveler.

Wow!  That Thunderstorm sounds like a dandy new ride.  Haven't caught that one before....Lol.... ;)

It was a beautiful, hot day at the city. We got there for rope drop. We waited in no lines except for river blast around 2 pm. We had my nieces with us and they wanted to ride the wave carousel.  We now remember why we donít ride it often. It took them 10 minutes just to load the ride. They didnít all make it on the same rotation so we had to wait through it twice. Ugh.

Lots of progress on the rib house this trip. The Mexican restaurant is definitely one of our favorites. They rode every ride in the expo, Caleb on time traveler, all the kids rode thunderstorm twice. Hit up the saloon show and there were some new one liners and a new prop. Our visitors loved it!  I didnít recognize any of the girls this time. Two runs through grandfathers mansion and a run through the taffy stop and we were done.

We will be back next weekend for moonlight madness. We will have our month-long foreign exchange student with us.

So, sdc is definitely NOT Disney. Youíll find flexibility will go a long way in making your day great. Itís a good idea to know what youíd like to ride but donít plan an order. You will find that everything is close together so itís easy to hop all over the park to find a ride that doesnít have a long line. You will find a much more relaxed environment.

Iíd recommend the week of the 10th over the week of the 24th. Earlier in the week is better.. say Tuesday and Wednesday.

Iíd be super surprised if your 9 year old is shorter than 48 inches. Your 7 year old may be over 48 inches as well. To get their official sdc heights go to the measuring station in the grand expo first. They will measure your kids and give them wrist bands that will expedite you getting in the rides.

Skip the trailblazer. It costs a lot and there is no good reason to have it for the rides you are looking at. The only one you might considering rushing too first is powder keg. Weíve seen the line well over an hour long this season but not often.

Most of these you will be able to do in a day. However, 2 days is a great idea too. Again, a slower pace here   Donít compulsive plan it. Go with the flow and you will have a great time!

Wish I could slice my 21 yr old in half:  I didn't realize the guest passes are blacked out tomorrow, and that is the only day we can go  :-[ :'(

We have passes that are good tomorrow. Did you buy yours later than the end of January?

A little over 12,000 people today...  Would have been a beautiful day to be there today..

We were there. In general lines were quite long. But we were able to see the shows we wanted to see by giving up rides. The temp was good but the wind was quite chilly.
